Food Pantry

If you need food, please come on Saturday between 9 a.m. and noon, or call 201-898-2350 and leave a message. 

The Bible tells us to feed the hungry.  Our food pantry is doing that daily.  It usually serves over 500 families a week, but that number has been increasing since COVID-19. We pick up food from area grocery stores and the Community Food Bank of New Jersey.

If you would like to help, please donate here.  We also accept volunteers.

Jersey City honored Mohan Bahadur on May 25, 2023, in conjunction with a flag-raising ceremony to commemorate Guyana's independence. City officials honored Mohan for his dedicated service to the community, including nearly 20 years as a volunteer for the St. Matthew's Lutheran Church food pantry, where he is the assistant director.
